Remembered Today:

Thomas J Roundell

Recommended Posts

Good evening.

Can anyone help with this please ?

His name was Thomas J Roundell.

He was born in 1881 and died in 1960

He came from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire

I am told he was in the West Yorkshire Regiment


If any one can add to this thread, his family would be very grateful

Thank you

Certainly looks like the West Yorks cap badge in the photo


Cannot see a MIC for a Thomas J Roundell  

Born 1881 he would have been aged 33 at the outbreak of the war

He may have served at home only (no overseas service no medal entitlement hence no MIC

Thomas Joseph 1911 lived with his mother Mary and two boarders at New Row, worked as a poultry dresser.

could he have had a reserved occupation or not fit for active service at 29 in 1914

could he have been photographed pre or post war?

Thanks for the replys.

I have since been told that he might have been working with and/or looking after prisoners of war.

Dont know whether in Europe or in England....fair comment about his age, maybe he only served at home 


Would the West York Regt archives shed any light on where and when he enlisted ?


Thank you

Electoral rolls for 1918 & 1919 have him listed as NM (Naval and Military) service...naturally this doesn't confirm overseas service.
